A sexy psychological thriller that takes jabs at the real estate industry--suspenseful with a touch of romance. Someone is killing off the unethical Realtors in Rock Canyon and the clues are all pointing toward Dana Black, a sharp-witted yet emotionally skittish Realtor with memory lapses, who has no alibi for the crimes because during each, she was using her empty listings for illicit purposes with her twisted lover, Dare. When alluring but vanilla detective Aidan Cummings comes onto the scene, Dana has increased motivation to investigate by his side and clear her name. What she discovers startles her on multiple levels and leaves her to wonder about her romantic future and more importantly--is she the 'Realtor Retaliator' or will she be his next victim?
About the Author
Who is D.M. Barr? By day, a mild-mannered salesperson, wife, mother, rescuer of senior shelter dogs, happily living just north of New York City. By night, an author of sex, suspense and satire. My background includes stints in corporate communications, marketing, travel journalism, meeting planning, public relations and real estate. I was, for a long and happy time, an award-winning magazine writer and editor. Then kids happened. And I needed to actually make money.

The main thing to remember about my work is that I am NOT one of my characters. For example, as a real estate broker, I've never played Bondage Bingo in one of my empty listings or offed one of my problem clients. But that's not to say I haven't wanted to...
